DORRI’S DENTAL

Sometimes, tooth damage is so severe that they cannot be treated with normal fillings, but it does not need a full-coverage dental crown. In such a situation, Inlays and Onlays prove to be an effective solution. These are considered indirect fillings, which means they are fabricated outside in a lab to fit exactly. If you are looking to get Inlays and Onlays, schedule an appointment with Dorri’s Dental.

What are Inlays and Onlays?

As mentioned earlier, these are a type of indirect fillings. These are fabricated outside your mouth in a dental lab, unlike the direct fillings. Once done, these fillings are then bonded to your teeth by your dentist. Inlay fillings are when it fits within the cusps of a back tooth. Onlay, on the other hand, covers one or more of these cusps. But in both cases, the procedure of laying them is more or less the same.

One of the biggest advantages of this treatment method over the crown is that it helps in saving more of your natural teeth. When you go for a crown, your natural teeth need a lot of reshaping and restructuring but inlays and onlays do not require that.
